Schooner Dalia

The beautiful 18m (56 foot) schooner Dalia was built in Brazil, as a replica of a Gloucester Fishing schooner. The hull is a very hard and rot-restant Brazilian wood called ipê, the deck, house and spars are a lighter Brazilian wood called freijó.

We had a pleasant visit with Dalia's friendly owner/builders George and Silvana, at their house, which Dalia is moored in front of.

This is how most stuff is moved around on Abraao, by hauling carts. The T-shirt this man is wearing identifies him as a legal cart-person.

Very few motor vehicles are allowed on Abraao...mostly police vehicles and this one dump truck.

The Deepwater Millenium is a deep-water drilling ship that is anchored and (presumably) drilling in shallow water near Ilha Grande.

Drillship and Schooner

The drillship seems to be supplied by both a tug & barge, and a white gaff-rigged schooner (harder to see, to the left of the tug and barge).

With the fisherman (big sail between the two masts) set. Am still experimenting with the length of the tack downhaul, which controls how high up the sail is set (which is why the fisherman is not all the way to the top of the masts).
